San Jose is supposed to be a sanctuary city. Illegal aliens are welcome – but Donald Trump and his supporters are not.
A violent crowd of mostly Spanish-speaking thugs, waving Mexican flags brutally attacked Americans in San Jose Thursday night.
They targeted supporters of Mr. Trump – leaving them bloodied and battered. One guy was sucker-punched. Another was smashed in the face. A woman was pelted with bottles and eggs.
CBS in San Francisco reported that “another young man was chased down like prey. He ran until finding some police officers who stopped his attackers.”
ABC News reports the rioters smashed the taillights of a car. The vicious mob even turned their wrath on police – attacking them with whatever they could find.
They also burned the American flag. They burned Old Glory – on American soil. But they did not burn the Mexican flag.
If they love Mexico so much — perhaps they should pack their belongings and head to the border.
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo responded to the violence by criticizing Mr. Trump.
“At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign,” he told the Associated Press.
Mr. Liccardo is a Democrat. He is also a moron.
Get a load of this sentence that was published in the The Mercury News – San Jose’s hometown newspaper:
“San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo criticized Trump for coming to cities and igniting problems that local police departments have to deal with.”
So Mr. Trump and his supporters are not welcome in San Jose? I thought your town was a sanctuary city, Mr. Mayor?
And on the subject of responsibility – how about condemning the flagrant violence against not only Trump supporters – but also the police?
For months now anti-Trump thugs have bullied and harassed those who plan on voting for the Republican nominee. This is a classic example of how the left tries to silence the opposition — through intimidation — and violence.
These are not protesters — these are criminals. These are enemies of free speech. Thugs.
What happened last night is yet another example of how President Obama’s policies have fundamentally transformed our nation.
We’ve been invaded, folks. And now we’re being colonized by the invaders.
